Hello August!

Hey everyone!~

Another new month now, summer is ticking away very fast. It’s currently pretty rainy and cloudy outside, not much one can do with this weather. But besides this fact, I have been waiting with great patience for many things that are happening this coming August. 🙂 

My summer is a ticking away fast and I can’t wait until it is over, as weird as it sounds! Everything seems to happen towards the end of summer. It is in August where I would be able to attend a dance intensive in Dublin. (The Dance Institute).

As I am not a life-long dancer and late- starter this intensive will be catered towards my level. Besides ballet, we will be doing modern and contemporary, jazz, Tap (which I am looking forward to), pilates, Street and Ballroom. I honestly have no experience in any of these dances however I am looking forward to dancing ballet, which I will be doing every day alongside jazz. It will be an amazing experience I cannot wait! At the same time, I don’t want to have extremely high expectations as it might not be what I expect. In all honesty, I am a bit apprehensive as I am already 17 and I feel like many of the dancers will be young dancers. Thankfully, as I am of Asian descent, I look younger than I really am. For once I am grateful to be seen as more youthful! 😉 Many people seem to assume I am fifteen or younger than my real age and now I can honestly say this will definitely help me in the ballet world.

It is also at this month that I will be getting my Leaving Cert results (click here to read about the Leaving Cert). Last month, in June I sat my leaving cert exams which will determine whether I get into the University of my choice. I think it would be equivalent to the A Levels in the UK and SATS in America. Basically, it takes your grades and adds them up in points which determine your place in Uni. Coincidentally, the day I get my results will be the same time I will be attending my summer intensive.

I am planning on pursuing Physiotherapy as my major which will be a full-time 4-year course in RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons). At the same time, I want to develop my love for dancing, which will be quite difficult in consideration of my choice of major. However, I am very optimistic about the future, my ballet teacher; Ms. S. is setting a provisional timetable where we would have three classes a week on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

If you are following ballet.to (me by the way) You might have seen a similar post I did to this one. That’s right I stole content from another website which is mine! Hehehe But, I will let you I have tweaked in some ways to suit the time frame.

Hope you guys have a lovely week! As always see you in my next post. 

May- xxx 

 

 

This picture encapsulates what Ireland looks like now.

in midst of sorrow

In midst of sorrow, we shan’t linger in what we have lost,

But to ponder the great things our

lost have allowed us to realize,

And that is living is precious.

We will meet them in time,

In the meantime live life with vigor

For they who have perished lived

their lives to bring smiles to

others.

And, unknowingly to yours too.

Hello Readers, once again another brutal fatality has occurred and the most upsetting part of it is the innocent lives they have claimed. To all the victims this is a short musing/ poem I have written to remember them.

Why is life like this? |Thoughts

Looking around the world I see so many things that make me want to cry and angry at the same time. And every day I see what used to be houses turned into crumbling rocks and dust at the feet of families who live in them. I see young children with sad eyes and traumatised faces-innocent little things that should not have to endure and suffer what they have not done. And every day as I go to school and sit in the many tedious classes I have I realize how lucky I am and blessed for the life my parents have worked hard to give me. But I also am aware of how useless I am to do anything.

Afterall, I am just a 17 year old girl. A girl living a life of study, school, exams, and dance and yet, I feel so helpless. I often wonder if everyone feels the same? Do they care? I see my teacher talk about many things but nothing that strikes the topic of what we should care about. People go about their daily lives and feel indifferent to the other people and the world around them. They find means to isolate themselves when in fact this is not the right way at all.

I can only hope people have learned from mistakes from the past and strive to distinguish situations for what is right. Looking at it in a positive light, I think these challenges are good for our world today. The world would a dull place if there weren’t any adversities to overcome right? And, of courses somehow they give us the chance to play heroes. Then everyone will have their own happy ever afters.

Dear readers, what do you think of today’s crisis, I would love to know.


As always, have a good day and see you in my next post.

May.
